I've tried out a few recipes I've seen around teh intrwebs lately and thought I'd pass along the ones that got the green light from me. Speaking of recipes, are you guys on the Real Simple daily recipe email list? An awesome reader by the name of Kristen brought it to my attention and I couldn't be happier. I've got a ton of recipes to try and everyone I've made already has been bbbbbangin.
First up is Spinach Lasagna Rolls, found here. They look good, don't they? They were a fun little meal to make and were definitely something different. The only change I made was to doctor up the tomato sauce a little with some Italian Seasoning. And I wish I would have doctored up the ricotta. Make it worth it and use one with some fat in it. I didn't and I regret that. I think it would have been that much better with a full fat version. But either way, thumbs up from me.
And since I began making my own pizzas (like last year...I'm slow), I'm always on the lookout for good topping combos. Normally I prefer white pizzas with spinach and roma tomatoes but I've got to cook for the husband too. So I went with the typical dude meal, steak and potatoes. On pizza. And down it with some beers if you want to be completely stereotypical. However it goes down your gullet, just make sure it does. It's good stuff. I found the recipe here and altered it by using one potato...and was happy I did.
And finally, my most favorite, Quick Sliders. Mini cheeseburgers that are baked! Easy peasy and so friggin good. This recipe makes a shit-ton of mini burgs so I halved it and it was perfect for dinner and some leftovers. I used Pepperidge Farm slider rolls but a lot of people use the Kings hawaiian rolls and next time, I'm totally using them too. I didn't add any toppings besides a little ketchup, I'm a cheeseburg purist.
So there you go, add all three to your menu plans and get to eatin. And as usual, I'm always on the lookout for good dishes to make so if you've got one, hook me up.
